The fourth edition now updated with many new photographs.
An easily understood book that provides as much inspiration as it does technical instructions.
Photography of Natural Things is Freeman Patterson's internationally acclaimed instructional book on photography and visual design. From a moon over a winter landscape to a starfish in an intertidal pool, or a bird in flight, this essential guide demystifies the techniques of photographing nature.
The book is now updated to include technical guidelines adapted for both film and digital photographers. It features new photographs from Patterson's collection and extended captions that include valuable technical information and personal commentary from one of the world's most celebrated nature photographers.
Freeman Patterson has published twelve books and won numerous awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Nature Photography Association. Freeman lives at Shamper's Bluff, New Brunswick, an ecological reserve of over 200 acres, which he recently donated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
[Review for previous edition] This book provides instruction on techniques and offers guidelines for photographing nature in a personal and interpretive approach.
